Thomas Rawls injury update: Seahawks RB reportedly will be inactive vs 49ers

New, comments
NFL: Seattle Seahawks at Los Angeles Rams Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

It’s been a tough road for Thomas Rawls.

After missing most of the offseason workouts and practices while recovering from a broken ankle, Rawls didn’t see any game action until a couple of carries in the preseason finale. He had 12 carries for 32 yards against the Miami Dolphins in Week 1, but was held to -7 yards on seven carries in Week 2. He left that game early with what was later called a “leg contusion” and that injury looks to force him out of another game; the Seahawks will reportedly keep him out and start Christine Michael once again.

It also sounds as though rookie C.J. Prosise will be inactive for the second week in a row. Prosise (hand) was injured in the middle of the Dolphins game and has yet to return. This despite a seemingly regular workload in practices and this message from Pete Carroll on Friday:

Michael has been one of the better running backs in the NFL this season, gaining 126 yards on 25 carries, but the team has yet to rush for a touchdown. (And you’ve probably noticed they’ve only thrown for one.) This also means that rookie Alex Collins (2 carries, 0 yards this season) will likely get the most work yet in his young career. The team signed running back Terrence Magee to the 53-man roster on Saturday.

In case you were wondering, Troymaine Pope has not been active for the New York Jets yet and Zac Brooks remains a free agent.
